I have a good spec computer which is unable to record games, and also suffers from very large fps drops in games such as watch dogs, skyirm, minecraft, GTA IV and DayZ standalone and also the mod.

Specs:
i7 2700k
7870 2GB XFX
8GB Ram
600W PSU
500GB 7200rpm Samsung HDD

Please help me :-/

What resolution are you playing on and what settings are you using?

EDIT: Download and run Malwarebytes to make sure that your PC doesn't have any malware: https://www.malwarebytes.org/

1080P and High, which is completely reasonable for the specifications in my opinion.

Yeah, sounds reasonable. See the edit on my previous post and run a scan with that program. You might also want to keep an eye on your temps. Download HWMonitor and check the temps while playing something intensive like Watch Dogs.

Well 4 out of the 5 of those games are notorious for low fps, the exception being skyrim. Do you have any mods for skyrim like enb's or texture packs? As mentioned above your hardware could be throttling performance due to high temperatures. Make sure the CPU is under 65 C and GPU is under 85C.

Can be as frequesnt as 10-15 seconds, or up to once a minute. ANywhere inbetween there but it is so inconsistant!

Assuming that's for the CPU, what about the GPU and motherboard?

No thats the GPU temp. Also the same for the CPU.

And Malwarebytes didn't find anything? Are you sure you don't have Vsync on?

Malware bites found stuff and quarantined it. I dont have VSync on, should I turn it on?

No, don't turn Vsync on, that would probably cause more lag.

What is you RAM/CPU/GPU usage when these fps drops happen (use task manager and something like MSI afterburner to monitor those)?

The performance tab of task manager will tell you the RAM and CPU usage, and pretty much any GPU overclocking utility (like MSI Afterburner) will tell you the GPU usage.

I think I have determined that the GPU is overheating so it freezes for a second. How can this be fixed?

And I really don't understand all MSI afterburner stuff.

You can try blowing out the dust in your case with some compressed air. Adding more case fans might also help.
